Weekend Fun: At the Art Shanties

One thing I truly love about Minnesota is the way winter is approached with gusto and enthusiasm.  Surprisingly January and February can be the busiest time of year, socially speaking.  I guess we just know how to embrace the inevitable.   Of course this year, so far, has been a bit of an exception, but it hasn't stopped any of us from enjoying the Ice Shanties on Medicine Lake.  Have you ever been?  If not, read more here.  I highly recommend checking it out; just remember to leave your self consciousness on the shore for it can only really be enjoyed inhibition free.  During my visit I joined a silent flash mob, hugged a giant monster hand, spun inside a giant egg, dressed up in a fur overcoat, tried to break into the dance shanty, enjoyed the finer points of cogs and wheels, pretended to speak with a french accent-poorly, hung out in a hammock, made an Aaron Rodgers button, and shamelessly played on an ice formation that really wasn't a part of the project at all, but almost equally as entertaining.
